Jennifer Lawrence says she doesn't go on her official Facebook page a lot, but on Friday, she needed to.

The Hunger Games actress is filming the movie Joy with director David O. Russell, and TMZ reported that there was a "loud argument" on the Boston set between them.

"The eye witness says David started screaming at her... it was ear-piercing and laced with profanities," the report said.

Lawrence calls it all a "terrible rumor" in her latest Facebook post.  She wrote, "David O. Russell is one of my closest friends and we have an amazing collaborative working relationship. I adore this man and he does not deserve this tabloid malarkey."
